Fairy Bones featured in Echo Magazine!

The last time Fairy Bones took the stage at Rainbows Festival, lead singer Chelsey Louise was proposed to by a fan in the crowd.

“I unfortunately couldn’t accept at the time, but I’m still accepting requests,” she said.

That was 2013 and, needless to say, a lot has changed for the band since.

Echo caught up with Louise ahead of the band’s second Rainbows Festival appearance – they’ll be taking the community stage at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 15 – and here’s what she had to say.

Echo: the last time we spoke, Dramabot had jus dropped. What has been going on with the band since? (Read Echo‘s 2015 Fairy Bones feature here.)

Louise: The Dramabot era was definitely a whirlwind. We’ve had the pleasure of opening for Alien Ant Farm, Kyle Gass Band (from Tenacious D), and played the McDowell Mountain Music Festival – with headliners like Beck, St Lucia, Kid Cudi, and Gary Clark Jr to name a few – thatwas awesome. Been on two or three tours throughout the Southwest partying in warehouses and venues. Dropped a music video for “Notes from Wonderland” that won Best Music Video at Phoenix Comicon 2016. And then this April we went into hibernation to write new tunes!

Echo: Congrats on all the success! What has been the most surprising part of the journey thus far?

Louise: Thank you! I think the most continually surprising thing is when people sing along to our songs and genuinely like our music. Still baffles me.

Echo: You all look and sound better than ever! Has the past year and a half felt like charm school or more like puberty?

Louise: At this point, when we listen back to Dramabot, it’s like we are so far away from that place now musically and mentally. I had been writing about what was happening to me at the time, what had happened in the past. That album was very cathartic … So, puberty, for sure. I’m extremely proud of the new songs we have, they’re much more mature songwriting wise and lyrically. I’m ridiculously anxious to play them live.
